When the road ends, and the goal is gained, the pil­grim finds that he has trav­elled only from him­self to him­self.

CRUSH­ING ISIS Un­der his pres­i­dency Isis would dis­ap­pear “very, very quickly”. The bil­lion­aire failed to out­line his anti-Isis strat­egy in de­tail, but said the ex­trem­ist group's "days are num­bered". RE­BAL­ANC­ING AL­LIANCES He would call sum­mits for NATO al­lies and Asian al­lies, to help ease the fi­nan­cial bur­den on the US. “The coun­tries we de­fend must pay for the cost of this de­fence. If not, the US must let th­ese coun­tries de­fend them­selves.” ON PAK­ISTAN It’s not only one coun­try, you have nine coun­tries right now with nu­clear weapons….But Pak­istan is semi-un­sta­ble….If you look at In­dia maybe they’ll be help­ing us out. We have many, many coun­tries that we give a lot of money to and we get ab­so­lutely noth­ing in re­turn and that’s go­ing to stop fast.

LESS IN­TER­VEN­TION­IST AMER­ICA “I will not hes­i­tate to de­ploy mil­i­tary force when there is no al­ter­na­tive,” he of­fered. “But if Amer­ica fights, it must fight to win. I will never send our finest into bat­tle un­less nec­es­sary - and will only do so if we have a plan for vic­tory.” AMER­ICA FIRST “Amer­ica first will be the over­rid­ing theme of my ad­min­is­tra­tion,” Trump said in his re­marks at Wash­ing­ton’s Mayflower ho­tel, de­liv­ered from a pre­pared text and in a sub­dued fashion starkly at odds with the free­wheel­ing rhetor­i­cal style that has pow­ered his po­lit­i­cal rise on the cam­paign trail. “My for­eign pol­icy will al­ways put the in­ter­ests of the Amer­i­can peo­ple and Amer­i­can se­cu­rity first.” RE­BUILD OUR MIL­I­TARY “Our mil­i­tary dom­i­nance must be un­ques­tioned....We are also go­ing to have to change our trade, im­mi­gra­tion and eco­nomic poli­cies to make our econ­omy strong again.”

THE NORTH KOREA PROB­LEM “You tell them (Chi­nese), …ei­ther you are go­ing to have to straighten out this North Korea prob­lem or we are not go­ing to be do­ing so much busi­ness with you.”
